Dave Good has written an article on us in the San Diego Reader about the progress (and drama!) that surrounds our group. You will see mentions of how the second EP was recorded among references to deers. It’s a good read, thanks Dave and thank you San Diego Reader!
I’m proud to announce Tunecore has featured our music on their own blog. The feature “New Music Tuesday” goes through some of the releases that are completely new and picks some of the standouts, one of which this week was “Capital Grey”. Thanks Tunecore!
So the second EP is finally out in the “great wide open” as Tom Petty would say. I love listening to it myself, there’s some valuable stuff to be heard. Stand out tracks are probably Dream of April 10th and In the Sun, or at least my favorites. On to recording more stuff!
Exciting time, the website is finally finished. Took some features out, put some new ones in. Most importantly however is the new EP which will be released next week. I think it turned out well, I think I mixed and mastered it pretty well. I personally enjoy listening to it even after hearing no less than 1,000 repetitions of the same songs over and over again. Alas, that is the game of audio engineering.
Hey people, a new EP is coming very soon as well as a website revamp so stay tuned! The new release will be appropriately titled “Capital Grey” with an accompanying edgy new look to the website. There were more than a few cobwebs that needed to be cleaned up in the code so I decided to scrap it and start with a clean site. Just like starting over. Dance vibes are coming soon!
More press! We’re now a Music Xray Featured Artist. Did an interview with Victoria Davis of Music Xray, we talk about things like the group’s roots, live show, our BBC play, and even our age! It’s a must read if you like how I talk.
So we’re testing out new songs, trying things. We’re going to be recording again soon, it’s very exciting. The new release is going to be a mix of dance, rock, metal, a bunch of stuff. We decided that recording new music is the most important thing right now so that’s what we’re focusing on.
Our friends at Acid Ted have posted about our live cover of the classic Frank Sinatra song “Just the Way You Look Tonight”. They think it’s bonkers! (And I agree, Frank is probably not happy, then again, who knows? Maybe he’d love it…?) Thanks to Colin for bearing with me. (He knows what I’m talking about…)
Last Sunday we were played on 102.1 KPRI’s wonderful Homegrown Hour by Cathryn Beeks, thanks Cathryn! It’s great hearing your song on the stereo and seeing a broadcast frequency on the little screen instead of “CD”, or even worse, “AUX”. haha. You can listen to the recording at the following link. We’re on the June 3rd Segment 3 podcast.
We were featured recently in the SD Reader, it’s a nice article by Dave Good about how we got played on the BBC. This is what happens when you come to shows like the one we had tonight at the Ruby Room. Thank you all for coming!
